You have already made a great start just by deciding to come in here.

Just take it one day at a time and build on every achievement you make. the loss of pounds will be a by product and you will ultimately achieve your goals.

If I can give you any help then give us a shout.

So I can have tomorrow what others can't.

You will ultimately become the people you associate with and eventually become the books that you read.

Welcome! I'd recommend this article for you:

And I understand you feel disappointed, but try to look on the bright side. You are doing a good thing for yourself now. The only way you could make things worse is doing nothing, so you deserve some respect for getting back on the horse!

Just remember there is more to losing weight than nutrition and exercise. It has to become your new lifestyle, something you enjoy and can continue doing the rest of your life. Not something stressful and restrictive like most "diets" are.

Do your best! And look into the article here at SparkPeople about motivation and wellness. They're a gold mine.

"Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor."

"The fearless are merely fearless. People who act in spite of their fear are truly brave."

"All success stories have 1 thing in common -- they decided they were going to do something, and then they did, no matter what got in their way."

Hi there -
I am feeling over-whelmed about the whole idea of dieting again. I have lost/gained/lost/gained weight my whole life, but can't ever seem to maintain. Had a Dr. appt. today. Total reality check from Dr. How can I do this yet again? Where can I find the will-power to do what I need to? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I am so depressed about starting over!
